CD Reviews

Delightful reworkings of country-rock great GP
09/18/2000
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Maybe not all of the covers work, but this is mostly a very enjoyable album. Emmylou's tribute album has overshadowed this one, but with Bob Mould, Victoria Williams, Uncle Tupelo, and the Mekons, you know that there is some really good stuff here. Not as reverent as some tribute albums, and better for it! On the reverent ones, you'd generally do better to just buy the originals. In this case, DO buy the originals, then check out this entertaining cd."
Better than the all-strar tribute
09/23/2002
(4 out of 5 stars)

"This earnest and sometimes ragged tribute to the genius of Gram Parsons outshines, in my opinion, the Tribute by EmmyLou Harris that came out a few years later. While all the artists may not be as high profile as EH's, they come by their Gram Parsons influences honestly, and their love for the material shows. Definitely recommended. The only thing better is Gram Parsons himself in the GP/Grievous Angel CD."
Excellent cover version of Return Of The Grievous Angel

(4 out of 5 stars)

"This tribute shows just how many people Gram Parsons' music influenced. My favorite song is Return Of The Grievous Angel by Joey Burns & Victoria Williams. They do a terrific version. This song alone is worth the price of the CD. I wish Joey Burns would record his own Gram Parsons tribute. He has a good voice. I also like The New Soft Shoe by Polly Parsons & Eden. Like all Rhino CDs the sound quality is first class."
